#OctPoWriMo 2018 Day 12–YAG Operation on One Eye and the Second Noble Truth

October 12, 2018


YAG Operation on One Eye and the Second Noble Truth

Today a doctor

used a laser to return

sight to my hazy left eye

Now I see flowers

soup labels on the top shelf

blurred for many years

Doctor’s schedule full

right eye must wait for five months

Suffer in half sight


A Senryu.  Desire causes suffering, or I didn’t know what I was missing, but now…  A different last line might be: Half sight not 20-20.

  1. Oh my. That’s got to be joyful and frustrating at the same time.

  2. Yep, but could see my Mexican sunflowers blooming 10 feet above me and when I cover my right eye, everything is so crisp!

  3. Andrea R Huelsenbeck permalink

    I love how you altered your illustration to match your poem. Clever.

  4. Used a dirty glass. Pretty close to how it looks in each eye separately but together it is just a bit better than when they were both bad.
